Fr. Eric Schild



Welcome to our St. Joseph Parish family! I continue to be amazed at how the Holy Spirit is working in our parish and would love to have you experience it as well! From senior citizens to our youth, there is something here for you to grow deeper in your relationship with our Lord!

Our Sacred Purpose here at St. Joseph’s is to engage the community, encounter Christ, and transform lives on our journey to heaven. I invite you to check out our website for all the ways you can get involved and the many prayer opportunities to help you become a disciple.

Please introduce yourself to me after Mass if we haven’t already met! I would love to get to know you better and to welcome you personally into our faith community. Or better yet, please invite me to your home for dinner!

I look forward to journeying with you!

In Christ,

Fr. Eric

About St. Joseph's

St. Joseph Catholic Church was established in 1841 and is located in Maumee, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo.

With the school beginning just 14 years later in 1855, thousands of people have experienced the fruits of Catholic Education and the tradition continues to this day. St. Joseph Catholic School currently has an enrollment of over 420 students in Preschool – 8th grade.

The parish also has a beautiful Cemetery established back in 1873, which is located on 910 W. Wayne St. beside Side Cut MetroPark.

Currently, St. Joseph Parish is made up of approximately 2,500 families living in a geographic area that contains urban, suburban, and rural communities including Maumee, Monclova, Waterville, Whitehouse, Perrysburg and Toledo.

Our Sacred Purpose is to engage the community, encounter Christ, and transform lives on our journey to heaven.”

In short, our mission is to ENGAGE, ENCOUNTER and TRANSFORM. Those three words are key to who we are as a parish, and key to our success in leading people to be intentional disciples of Jesus on their journey to heaven.
